Take your journalism career to the next level and deepen your understanding of environmental issues by applying for the 2021-2022 Ted Scripps Fellowships in Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado Boulder. Five accepted candidates will audit courses, participate in weekly seminars and field trips, and work on a significant project. In partnership with the Scripps Howard Foundation, these positions are offered by the Center for Environmental Journalism, part of the College of Media, Communication and Information. Thanks to a campus-wide commitment to research and teaching on the many facets of environmental problems, the university provides Scripps fellows with unparalleled intellectual resources that can be tailored to meet their needs and interests.

The program provides a $71,000 stipend and covers course tuition and fees, and attendance at the annual SEJ and NASW conferences. Employment begins at the start of the Fall 2021 semester and runs for nine months through the end of the Spring 2022 semester. All university breaks and holidays will be observed.

The fellowship is aimed at outstanding journalists committed to a career in professional journalism. It is open to full-time journalists working in any medium who are interested in deepening and broadening their knowledge of environmental issues. Applicants must have a minimum of five years full-time professional journalism experience and must also have a four-year college degree, at minimum. Applicants may include reporters, editors, producers, photojournalists, documentarians, and feature writers. Both salaried staff and full-time freelancers are welcome to apply.
